On this adventure tour we visit western Norway, an area characterized by outstanding natural beauty including deep blue fjords; the rugged Sunnmore Alps shrouded in glaciers and dramatically rising up to over 5,600 feet from the glistening fjords, pristine lakes, impressive waterfalls cascading over towering rocky cliffs, small picturesque historic villages amid lush green landscapes in narrow Ice-Age carved valleys, abandoned Viking homesteads clinging to rock slopes, and many UNESCO World Heritage sites. On this tour with our knowledgeable Norwegian guide, we take short day hikes amid this awesome splendor, learn about the geology, ecology, culture and history of the area, and return each night to relax in the comfort of some of Norway’s finest hotels and enjoy a superb local and international cuisine. From our hotels we are transferred by minibus and ferry to the different areas where we hike.
Alpine Hikes in Switzerland - Switzerland, Grindelwald: Hotel Lauberhorn
On this hiking adventure we explore three spectacular scenic regions of the Swiss Alps from the comfort of three classic picture-perfect alpine villages located amid lush green meadows of valleys and magnificent mountains shrouded in glaciers. These villages are an ideal base for hiking adventures as trails extend from the villages to the valleys, nearby towns and mountains. The massive peaks of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau overlook the towns of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunne, while the celebrated mountain village of Zermatt lies just below the towering Matterhorn. We lodge in and explore these three interesting towns characterized by boutiques, cafes and restaurants, and each day venture out to hike through flower-strewn alpine meadows, along streams, through forests, and to mountainous areas that afford views of the valleys below and mountains towering to over 13,000 feet and capped in ancient glaciers.
